Two polymorphs of N-(2-meth­oxy­phen­yl)-4-oxo-4H-chromone-3-car­box­amide

Abstract: The title compound, C17H13NO4, crystallizes in two polymorphic forms, each with two mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit and in the monoclinic space group P21/c. All of the mol­ecules have intra­molecular hydrogen bonds involving the amide group. The amide N atoms act as donors to the carbonyl group of the pyrone and also to the meth­oxy group of the benzene ring. The carbonyl O atom of the amide group acts as an acceptor of the [beta] and [beta]' C atoms belonging to the aromatic rings. These intra­molecular hydrogen bonds have a profound effect on the mol­ecular conformation. In one polymorph, the mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit are linked to form dimers by weak C-H...O inter­actions. In the other, the mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit are linked by a single weak C-H...O hydrogen bond. Two of these units are linked to form centrosymmetric tetra­mers by a second weak C-H...O inter­action. Further inter­actions of this type link the mol­ecules into chains, so forming a three-dimensional network. These inter­actions in both polymorphs are supplemented by [pi]-[pi] inter­actions between the chromone rings and between the chromone and meth­oxy­phenyl rings.
